About the property

Idyllic 2 bedroom retreat close to beaches, surrounded by stunning countryside

If you are looking for somewhere off the beaten track that has uninterrupted views of the countryside and that is also close to amenities and beautiful beaches then look no further than Gooseneck!

Gooseneck is a delightful cottage nestled in the Avon valley within walking distance of the estuary and beaches. For golf lovers, Bigbury Golf Course is literally 5 minutes away and the beach at Bigbury on Sea with the infamous Burgh Island, a five minute drive.

You could easily be forgiven for thinking you had found paradise. Gooseneck is a hidden gem that will provide you with such a relaxing and peaceful holiday, you won’t want to go home!

All on one level, Gooseneck is suitable for all ages and abilities.

There are 2 bedrooms, the first with a double bed, the second with twin beds.

There is a family bathroom with bath and shower over.

The open plan L shaped kitchen/diner/lounge is really light and airy and has 2 sets of patio doors that open up on to the large private garden.

The lounge area is furnished with a large L shaped leather sofa and comfy armchair.

With exposed beams, high ceiling and a huge television with surround sound, you may not want to leave, especially in the winter when curled up in front of the log burner!

The smart TV/Sound systems allows you to watch free satellite TV, DVD’s and listen to CD’s with surround sound system.

The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, large fridge and Belfast sink overlooking the countryside beyond.

Outside the garden has a patio area furnished with table, chairs and a bar b que.

The Avon estuary walk is literally outside the garden gate and provides nature lovers and ramblers the perfect opportunity to enjoy the stunning scenery on offer in the South Hams.

Bigbury beach is a 5 minute drive away or a half hour ramble will take you to Bantham.

What’s not to love!

Great Beaches

Bigbury Beach (lovely Venus Café if you don’t fancy packing a picnic, and home of Discovery Surf School for surfing, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding), Wonwell Beach (great for walks), Thurlstone Beach (loads of space), Bantham Beach (great for surfing), Aymer cove (lovely walk). See an OS map for other great beaches further away.


Holywell Stores at St Anne’s Chapel (for essentials and not-so-essentials – try the Guiness Crisps!), Modbury (cute little shops and café’s), Kingsbridge (very useful tourist information office near the main car park and lots of interesting shops, plus a Tesco and a Morrison and Co-Op/petrol station), and for true retail therapy head for Salcombe (check the map first for location of car parks or use the park and ride). Further afield there’s Dartmouth and Plymouth. Also most supermarkets will deliver here including Waitrose.

What To Do If It Rains

If you don’t fancy getting all wrapped up for a walk amongst the elements, you could try The Aquarium, the Vue Cinema or The Hoe at Plymouth; Overbecks in Salcombe (National Trust House and Garden with microclimate), Saltram House (another National Trust property with restaurant and activities for families), Avon Mill Garden Centre in Loddiswell (lovely plants/gifts and a great café), plus there’s a cinema and public swimming pool in Kingsbridge.

Other Very Local Things to Do

Obviously there’s golf at Bigbury Golf Club or you can enjoy a meal or drink in the bar there. As you head towards Bigbury from the golf club car park, if you go straight on rather than following the road round to the right, you’ll come across a Farm Shop on you left. They have a number of animals you can meet and a little tea room.

Walking Access to The Beach

You can walk to Bigbury Beach from here – go back up the lane, turn left at the top and follow the road through the golf course and then the path signs for the beach. You’ll come across Cockleridge first from where you can see Bantham across the River Avon. Turn right and wind your way along the beach all the way to Burgh Island. Do be careful of tides because you can get cut off. If that happens you can always walk back the road way.
